This summer has been sweltering for much of the United States in Europe, where temperatures soared above 100°. New data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA shows this past July was the hottest on record in matches Taste of the past five July’s being the the hottest. Since records began in 1880, it’s a new warning for policymakers: try to keep global temperatures from rising another 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the center. This is something it’s really important to understand. This is why these two ticks of mercury actually matter for the numbers in the Paris agreement above pre-industrial levels, essentially before power plant and other fossil fuels, became commonplace in developed Nations. Climate change is not a new concern by the way news pieces like this one from New Zealand in 1912 coalfire plants added about 7 million to 7 trillion tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the Arab more effective blanket for the Earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries, but we now have more data for more than a century since this article. What average global temperatures look like. Take. A look at this: this is what they look like in 2018 just 106 year difference during a. When the earth warmed by less than 1 degree celsius, and this in 1980 and 2008 is less than a degree we’re currently on track to see temperature change three to Five times this Changed by the end of this Century, according to United Nations data science, University and co-author of the madhouse effect how climate change is threatening our planet, destroying our politics and driving us crazy, Professor good, to see her. Thank you for being with us. This news that this past July was the hottest July on record July supposed to be a hot month. What is the hottest July on record mean to you to be with you? It’S especially significant because July, as it turns out, is the hottest month for the entire play. This might be intuitive to your viewers, but the fact is that the northern hemisphere has a lot more land. Has the major land masses the southern hemisphere, mostly ocean land, heats up more in the summer and cools down the winter? So, as goes the Northern Hemisphere goes the planet when it comes to the seasonal changes in temperature July is the hottest month in northern hemisphere. It’S the hottest month for the planet and we just had the hottest July. That means we just the hottest month that this planet has seen for as long as we have been measuring is the hottest July on record have occurred since 2005. We understand because yesterday was several degrees warmer than it was today, where I am this to degree celsius threshold and found that several sections of the United States have already experienced it to degree warming to help people. What does that mean that we’ve crossed a threshold? Do we do we come back from it? Can we fix it yeah, and so some perspective here to degrees sounds like a small increase in temperature, but that’s the difference in a healthy person and somebody suffering a fever, because it’s systemic, your entire body warms up that amount of it. It’S the same thing with the earth: the earth is suffering a fever, might sound like a modest warming of 2 degrees Celsius. 4 degrees Fahrenheit corresponds to a major melting of the ice sheets, including a Greenland. We just saw it last month to month of July 200 billion tons of ice melted from Greenland to raise sea levels by half of a millimeter. That sounds small, but it’s it’s it’s large enough that the human eye can actually see it. So we can actually see the amount of sea level rise. That happened because of the excessive Heat and we saw excessive heat in Europe. What might sound like? A modest amount of warming call host of unprecedented extreme weather events that we have seen play out in recent years: unprecedented floods and wildfires, and Super Storms and heat waves. Even if the Paris agreement were implemented in full, with total compliance from All Nations, it is estimated it would only produce a 2/10. I’M 1° think of that. This much Celsius reduction in global temperature by the year 2100, Tai that that that displays a remarkable misunderstanding of the problem here, because I think people like you would celebrate jump for joy. If we got a 2/10 reduction in temperature, we are barreling in the wrong direction. Expect on what the President says generally isn’t true and that’s the case here as well. Every country makes good on their commitments under the Paris Accord, take to 5 degrees Celsius, warming and 9 degree Fahrenheit and cut it almost half. It doesn’t get us where we need to be keep that warming less than 2 degrees Celsius is 4 degrees. Fahrenheit Paris gets us about halfway there.
